About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8, Stay 7 nights and that 7th night is FREE!

1000 sq. ft. of a rustic charmed cedar sided cabin on the Lake with a PRIVATE BOAT DOCK, welcomes you to 2 tranquil wooded acres in the Ozark Mountains. We like to call it a 'LAKESIDE HERMITAGE'. Stay 7 nights and pay for 6!

The interior of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin is surrounded by a warm tongue and grooved knotty pine throughout. The great room with 17' ceilings boasts a full kitchen, solid oak dining set, living area w/ large flat screen TV/DVD and lots of windows. A patio door also opens to the deck built around a large towering oak tree for natural shade and faces the lake equipped with patio furniture and a gas grill.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, massive country French pine dresser and nightstand, and a flat screen TV. The bunk room is off of the master and has its own separate entrance to the bath. The bathroom has a large shower with oil bronze bath fixtures and a granite vanity sink top. The loft features a bedroom with a daybed and attached pull out trundle (both with quality mattresses which can accommodate 2 adults comfortably), private bath with tub, and a sitting area with a bistro table and chairs overlooking the great room and the Lake where a game of cards, chess, or taking in a good book can be had.

At dusk, sit on your balcony or your private boat dock on the water, and enjoy the serene sounds of Owls, Bobwhites, Whip-poor-wills and Coyotes echoing through the valley. The evening also brings a variety of bats bug-surfing overhead for a midnight snack, and the occasional flying squirrel can be caught raiding the bird feeders under the cover of darkness. Or, perhaps gaze into the radiant night sky, absent of all city lights while searching for your favorite star, chase satellites to the horizon, or wish upon a shooting star while swapping stories around a warm crackling campfire.

Also, Mosquitoes are few to NONE!!! Yes, this truly is the 'Best of both Worlds'!


If you are looking for an escape from your fast paced world, basking in the natural tranquility and beauty of the Ozark Mountains, 'THE LAKESIDE HERMITAGE' on Bull Shoals Lake in Arkansas has what you seek. This clear blue lake was formed by the damming of the White River in the mid 1950's, and has been attracting all who love the outdoors ever since. It offers 45,500 acres of lake and 1050 miles of mountain shoreline, straddling the borders of Arkansas and Missouri. Fishing tournaments are held year round because of the outstanding fishing in this area and harbors species such as Walleye, Crappie, Catfish, and numerous varieties of Bass. The amazing cliff structures beneath the waters surface are not only great for fish habitat, but is well known for the great scuba diving and spear fishing due to the clarity of the lake. Pleasure boating is quite safe and relatively light, even on weekends and holidays. The White River, below the dam, is 18 scenic miles away via windy mountain roads, and is world renowned for its trout fishing, where your limit of Cutthroat, Rainbow, and/or Browns can easily be caught. This area remains to still be deemed as 'The mid-south's best kept secret' thus far!

Keywords: Charming cabin on the lake, Secluded on 2 Acres, tastefully and fully furnished, huge private dock.

Remote, Rustic, and Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

While this property might be featured in Jason Aldean's hit "Dirt Road Anthem" and features a rustic and remote feel, it really has everything you need to feel comfortable and be secluded from the crowds and noise that you see at other popular lakes. I brought my family of 4 (two young children 6 and 7 included) and had a BLAST on the pontoon that was available at the private dock. The time to get to Bull Shoals Marina via boat is less than 10 minutes, so I would strongly advise using their pontoon provided and keep your car parked and off the dirt roads. The golf cart available to go to the dock is a very nice touch!!

The stairs to the upper attic bedroom are very steep, so make sure whoever sleeps upstairs is physically capable of handling those steep stairs (not meant for the older or kiddos.)

Overall, we had a wonderful trip with great value!

This was a girls’ getaway, and it was perfect! Very secluded, which means peace and quiet. The cabin was great. We rented their pontoon for a day and just relaxed on the water. The owners are great to deal with. Very responsive. I plan to come back with my family! Thanks for a great stay.

Great place to relax and get away from it all!!

  • 5 of 5

Randy and Julie have the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying time with the family. I wanted to find a location somewhere between Chicago and Ft. Hood, TX for our family get away as we had family coming in from both directions...and could not have been happier with our choice. The cabin offered exactly what we were looking for - location, amenities, all the comforts of home and perfect weather! We spent time enjoying the large outdoor deck and great waterfront...and the golf cart was perfect for trips to and from the dock and boat. And, our four-legged family members were able to thoroughly enjoy their time with us. Randy and Julie are wonderful hosts and provided all the information we needed in advance of our trip. I highly recommend their cabin and look forward to visiting again soon!

Hermitage in April

  • 5 of 5

This year an Arkansas vacation in early April wasn't the best idea weather wise. But the cabin certainly surpassed our expectations. It was very secluded from the nearest houses. The only sounds were those of nature. We loved watching the steady stream of birds to the feeders. The view from the dock was also great, sunrise, sunset and any time in between. We found we over packed because the cabin was so well stocked. The towels were much better quality than we've found in other rentals. It usually takes a couple of nights for me to get to the point of getting a good night's sleep at a vacation home, but not here. We also loved the view from the deck. We would love to come back when its warmer!

WE HAVE A PRIVATE BOAT DOCK WITH A SWIMMING PLATFORM!! So, bring your boat/jet ski or rent one at the local marina. We also have a 7 person capacity fishing pontoon for rent! Tour Bull Shoals Lake Dam (the 5th largest in the US), view the mountains and the lakes for miles from the 'Top of the Ozarks Tower', go hiking thru many groomed/mapped trails in the Buffalo River National Forest or float the Buffalo River. Perhaps take a scenic drive down Hwy. 7, known as one of America's top 10 most scenic highways and hit a few of the several antique stores along the way, or just grill out on your own deck and take in the tranquility of wooded seclusion of The Lakeside Hermitage with the sounds of nature and the gentle waves hitting the shoreline just kickin' back and relaxing. The kids can stay busy with horseshoes, board games, DVD's, or fish from shore about 50 yards from your deck. Please note that shopping (Walmart Supercenter, restaurants, gas and other public activities are only 12-15 miles
